Power your house with a portable generator

On The BUILD Show today, Matt Risinger shows you how to power your house with a portable generator in case of a power outage. In this show, sponsored by Champion Power Equipment, Matt is with Tim Hill, Vice President of Risinger Build, where they talk about how to set up your home to run off a portable generator. Up front, it’s important to hire a licensed electrician to set this up, and you should watch this video all the way to the end, where the guys make a correction to note a detail they overlooked when the main video was initially filmed.

During a hurricane or similar outage, you can power a portion of your house like refrigerator, freezer and lights—even your furnace can be run from the generator, but it has to be set up conducted with utmost safety and correct procedure.

Watch the video to learn more.
